Tis the season... Zucchini Season! 7 Superb & Random Zucchini Recipes




It's that time again!  Not black Friday, not Christmas, nor your birthday!  It's Zucchini season!

You know what that means?  Those dark green beauties start popping out on super hot days, growing at a fairy tale rate until they are huge blimps in the garden, and people are handing them out everywhere!  You find them on your door step, hanging in bags on your front door, and even slid underneath your desk by zucchini fairies who leave them like secret gifts by unknown admirers LOL.

Like the ever elusive valentine, zucchini are given secretly and offered up with well wishes.  They are a symbol of prolific and healthy gardens, and given by folks who have too many and no idea what else to do with them.

If you find yourself the keeper of a prolific zucchini garden, or if you find some left at your door by a secret admirer, here are a couple of random and superb zucchini recipes to use up these precious gifts of summer!

Sharing this recipe at Weekend Potluck!  Come find ME and other great recipes this week HERE!

Enjoy!




  • Zucchini Pasta - A way to enjoy gluten free "noodles" and still enjoy that homemade manara.  I use a vegetable peeler to make wide zucchini "noodles".  They are delish!  This meal reminds me of cabbage rolls!

  • Zucchini Chocolate Cake - Moist and delicious, my mom made this cake for us often in the summer.  Topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, it makes a fabulous potluck dish or family dessert.




  • Zucchini "Pineapple".  This is a canning recipe and is a way to extend zucchini season into the cooler days ahead.



  • Zucchini Jam  This recipe is amazing!  I was a sceptic.  It uses jello (as the pectin), crushed pineapple, and zucchini.  I loved it topped on toast or fresh homemade bread!  I'm going to try adding some jalapeno next time for a spread fit for cream cheese dipping happiness!




  • One-Pot Garden Pasta - I added zucchini and all other sorts of vegetables to make a great one-pot meal!  Creamy and dreamy, pasta and veges make a great easy meal!


  • Zucchini Cobbler - (no picture yet) Tastes JUST LIKE apple cobbler.  I promise.  You cannot tell a single bit of difference.  This is crazy good.

Enjoy!
